Central Crete beaches



Tripiti beach, Ahlada
(162 votes)

Tripiti is located 19km northwest of Heraklion, between the Capes Katarameno (on the west) and Bourouni of Rogdia (on the east) and north of the homonym settlement of the area. It is an untouched beautiful beach with pebbles and deep blue waters. It is surrounded by towering cliffs and on the east side there are some beautiful caves, giving the name Tripiti (= with holes) to the beach. The steep cliffs make it one of the most isolated beaches near Heraklion. There is no access by car, although you can still see the remains of the road that leaded to the beach until 1995. The road has been completely destroyed by floods and now there is not even a footpath.

The only drawback is that the beach is open to the north winds, which carry some rubbish to the coast. But when the sea is calm, it is ideal for isolation, if you have a private boat of course.
